In 2001, 3 teams participated: Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, and a group of young ladies who went by the name of "Pink." The show has grown immensely since then.
The following year, in 2002, participation nearly doubled, with such groups as Sigma Nu Fraternity, Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, Kappa Delta Chi Interest Group, Baylor Women's League, students from North Russell Hall, and many others participating. The step show also raised quite a bit of money for the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation of Central Texas, which is the philanthropy of the Nu Iota Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. at Baylor University.
In 2003, Afro-Olympics became the All-University Charity Step Show, and showcased Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority, Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, Gamma Alpha Omega Sorority, Baylor Women's League, Kappa Delta Chi Interest Group, students from Kokernot Hall, and many others. Also this year we collected canned goods at the door and donated them to the Salvation Army here in Waco.
2004 year marks the first collaboration between Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and the Baylor Student Union to produce this widely anticipated step show. We have received an overwhelming response about the step show, and we would like to thank all of you for your support and participation in making this show a huge success.
